What did you like best about your internship/co-op? What type of work were you doing?

I worked in brand communications, mostly marketing campaigns (not product) and conducting research on competing brands. I loved the team I worked on! We got along super well and they were always thrilled to hear my thoughts on anything. I did a lot of research and organized the research in PowerPoints which I enjoyed.
